National parks get phone signals

14 July 2014

Green_Park,_London_-_April_2007 A deal between mobile operators to boost mobile coverage in England's National Parks has been agreed.

The Mobile Operators Association (MOA, obvs) represents O2, EE, Vodafone and 3, and have said that themselves and the parks have settled on an agreement, without ruining the natural beauty and loveliness of the parks.

Now you can do a selfie with a deer and share it instantly rather than go through the agonising wait until you reach civilisation [This could make for some really fancy hook-ups with Tinder and Grindr and the like - Ed.]

It will also help boost the lives of those who work and maintain the parks, and they can alert people quicker to them with a simple "leg in mantrap lol" and not be left to rot there for a fortnight.

A chair named Jim Bailey, from the National Parks England and the North York Moors National Park Authority said: “Today’s agreement will be good for the thousands of businesses and people living in our National Parks, for the millions who visit them, and for the stunning landscapes and towns that are the lifeblood of our rural economies,” he said.

The work will cover the 10 National Parks of England: The Broads, Dartmoor, Exmoor, Lake District, New Forest, Northumberland, North York Moors, Peak District, South Downs and the Yorkshire Dales.
